Going to Mozambique and Swaziland Africa
See that little red dot on the map? That's Swaziland Africa. It's a very small country but it has the world’s highest adult HIV prevalence rate of 26.1%. AIDS has devastated the ‘tiny Kingdom’. Average life expectancy has dropped from 57 to just 31 years of age,
there are 56,000 orphaned children
and 10,000 adults and children died from AIDS in 2007 alone.
Mozambique is the country right above Swaziland. The prevalence of HIV/AIDS there is high, which has resulted in a low life expectancy and high infant mortality and death rates. But a bigger issue for Mozambique is poverty.
Organizations like Children's Hope Chest and Children's Cup have established "Care Points" in these countries to meet the,medical, education, and spiritual needs of the people.
These care points also provide thousands of meals every day to children and adults who would otherwise not eat at all.
My church, Healing Place, has a campus in both Swaziland and Mozambique and both Campuses are partners with several Care Points through Children's Cup.
Evangeline and I will be going to Care Points, Orphanages and helping with a Vacation Bible school at both the Swaziland Healing Place Church campus and the Mozambique campus. July 21st - 31st.

For everyone that has donated, thank you so much!! I know it's not an easy thing to do in this hard economic time but I also know God will bless you.

God bless you all!
